Subject: Lights Out - Perchance to Dream
Jeff Morgan reads a story in a pulp fiction magazine exactly like one he'd written and filed away years earlier. His meeting with the author, Frank Joyce, is eerie; he already knows everything about the man without having met him before. Convinced Frank is his doppelganger, Jeff panics when he dreams Frank steps onto an elevator that malfunctions and plunges fifteen stories. Frank just scoffs at his frantic warning

As RADIO series, "Lights Out", along with "Inner Sanctum" and "Suspense" provided a direct ancestry for the "Twilight Zone". The "Lights Out" TV series continues this lineage. Although it's clear the productions in the series were brought in for a price (most clearly observed in the special effects), the acting is decent-to-good, with scripts to match.

"Perchance to Dream", to me, is one of the strongest episodes so far, in pacing and acting it clearly points the way to Rod Serling's famous series. Even with sparse special effects, this episode held my attention for its duration. This episode gets 4 1/2 stars.
